Yeah 3D desktop, hype of the year
You may consider the 3D desktop hype, but I consider the zoom features to be a necessity at this point, at least for me.
if you do need couture try a Mac.
Besides, why should I use a Mac when linux does just what I need? FreeBSD used to be on par with linux in that arena, it isn't now.
Or maybe Xorg hasn't got qualified developers who can develop system independent.
Either way, it's still FreeBSD's problem. They used to have someone who worked on DRI support, they don't now.
Besides, 3D accleration at this level has always required kernel support. Expecting the Xorg developers to remove all operating system specific support is not going to happen. Ever...

FreeBSD primary use was never a desktop system, but it fits of course for many people in this area. Look at some desktops in Linux, people who are actually working with it - they don't use instable features for real productivity. A friend of mine is using Maya at the Linux desktop at home and university, he wouldn't even think of using a 3D desktop ...

My point simply is that the number of people for whom FreeBSD fits as a desktop system is going to decrease. Whether or not the FreeBSD project cares to remedy that problem is simply up to them.
